I’m Moving….

Hello friends!  I have an announcement…..I'm moving!  My fiance got a job in Switzerland so we will be packing up our house and moving across the pond.  

I promise that my organization days are not over.  I have already promised Erin posts on small space living and how they organize things in Europe.  That is, if she continues to send me the latest and greatest things from Rubbermaid that I have become addicted to.  Right, Erin??? 🙂

One new series that I will be writing about will be THE MOVE.  Who knew it was so complex to move your life over the Atlantic?   Oh, did I mention we are planning a wedding at the same time?

My first organizational tool is my 3 Ring Binder for the move.   We get lots of emails and i want to make sure to properly record all of the documentation.  I had a hard time with this one, because I am converting to more electronic organization.  However, for this, I really felt more comfortable with paper copies.


How do you keep your important documents organized?  Binders? Folders? Electronically?

    First thing to do is to clean them and remove all of the documents that you no longer need. Once your files have been cleaned out you should make sure that they are all properly labeled and then box them together orderly. Once boxed it is wise to seal the box containing your documents and legal documents with stretch wrap and then label it.

    Good luck with your MOVE! What a task… I look forward to reading about your organizing and packing adventures!
    Now for the question at hand, how do I organize my important documents? I like to keep them electronically whenever possible. I like to use Microsoft’s OneNote program to organize all of my digital content. My wife and I use it like a digital binder. It allows us to keep well organized recipes, emails, travel information & important documents just to name a few. Pretty cool program. You can print directly to OneNote from your browser and email program, so it is great if you don’t like the paper trail. But let’s face it. Nothing is better than a good ole paper binder 🙂

    I am addicted to binders. I tried filing cabinets and they didn’t work for me. Electronic is hard if yo go to lots of meeting and do not have a laptop, or if your meeting place in not connected to the Internet. So for me binders were the answer, I can put plastic sleeves in them for small papers/cutouts. I can label the spine or colour code the binders and know at a glance which one I need for what meeting or subject.
